52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Lavinia Stamps October 2019 monthly challenge make - "All Hallows Eve"

On the first of each month Lavinia Stamps announce the new monthly challenge prompt.  The theme for October 2019 is "All Hallows Eve".

You can enter five pieces into the monthly challenge.  The challenge closes on the 25th of the month and the winner is randomly picked so the challenge is not ability based.  The winner will receive £40 of vouchers to spend on lovely Lavinia goodies.  Good luck if you enter.

This is a card that I have made as part of the Lavinia Stamps Design Team to help promote the challenge.  I started by using Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks through a Creative Expressions stencil  called "Fade Away" to create the patterned background.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the "Witches Cat", "Bats", "Bat Colony" and the cauldron from the "Willow The Witch" set.

I then gave the background a light colouring of "Wilted Violet" Distress Oxide Ink using a blending tool.

Using the torn edge of a sheet of paper, I created the landscape by dragging a black ink blender.

I then stamped the "Spring Trees" and part of the "Let Your Spirit Take Flight" sentiment in Versafine Clair purple "Monacrch" ink.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black Ink, I stamped the "Mini Slender Mushrooms".  I used a white Signo Pen to high-light the mushrooms and a gold shimmer Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add gold high-lights to other areas of the card.
